Interested in starting your journey into the mesmerising and magical world of alcohol inks? Join Patrycja Whipp for this introduction to alcohol inks class in Port Noarlunga and learn how to make two incredible artworks!

This fluid art technique is by all accounts amazing! The inks have a mind of their own and most of the fun is watching what happens as various colours slide over each other, pulling and repelling as they make patterns.

Not only can you create interesting drip patterns, marbling and dappling, you’ll also learn new ways to use and adapt what you create. You will work with a range of vibrant and translucent colours as well as metallic inks on a surface of the synthetic paper, called Yupo.

With minimum instruction and access to some high-quality inks and tools, you will be able to make two beautiful artworks that can be cherished for years to come.

You will walk out of this class knowing the basics of the colour combinations, flow techniques and ways to create depth and balance within the composition.

I have gained professional visual arts training and have a true passion for enhancing the lives of people through the arts. My mission as an instructor is to make visual arts accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience, and to inspire others to look for non-traditional ways to express their art through intuitive painting techniques.

Putting paintbrush to canvas has always excited me. Just take a glimpse at any of my pieces and it’s easy to see where I draw most of my inspiration – from nature and exotic trips I’ve embarked on around the world.

From these adventures, I always try to take a memory home with me. Whether the tropical birdlife, fragrant flowers or even tiny insects, they’ve all found their own little place in my world on canvas. They’re brought to life through the explosion of colour and texture.

My abstract works are created in acrylic, alcohol inks or resin, with a process called ‘flow-fusion’. The technique was inspired from the organic nature of liquid paint and the fluid look created by different colours running together. I also experiment with the pouring of paints onto canvas, manipulating it with a variety of methods, including gravity, to create a beautiful marbling effect and other unique finishes.

In my work, I am inspired by life and movement, everything I see and the emotions and energy I experience. Conveyed through my abstract expressionist style, I focus on allowing the paint to lead me to face the unknown. Through an explosion of colours and emotion, my work showcases the dynamics of life through the movement of the abstract form and her rich palette.
